Gamefly $7.95/a month
BMp takes a month to two months to get the newest released games. Gamefly has it the day it comes out. I'd love to switch but no more movies.

I like the Blockbuster deal mostly because it's part of my Dish bill and comes with extra HD channels.

You do realize that 7.95 price is only for the first month. Regular monthly rate is 15.95 for only one game out at a time. I liked Gamefly but thought it was to expensive which is why I canceled. I know BMP has a 90 delay on new releases but since it really doesn't cost me anything (was already paying for HD Platnium), I'm okay with the wait. I even increased my plan to 2 out so I could 1 movie and 1 game out.

I've had both services in the past. If you're only interested in games, Gamefly wins, hands down. You get new releases quicker. Their stock is more robust. Shipping is faster. I found Blockbuster to be kind of a dud.

Bb doesnt have a big selection. Gamefly basicly has almost every game made for a system that has been out on disc and not as a download. I coulnt hardly find titkes on bb for my ps3 that I would play but gf has all the titles I want.

I'd say the games via BBMP is a patient "bonus" to go along with the channels and Epix streaming, and shouldn't be used if you just want the games.

Agreed. Epix steaming is grate.

yea gamefly is not 7.95 per month. its worth that, but thats not how much it is. it's still not much considering the BB store was charging me $8 per 5 day rental for 360 games. which if you can beat a 360 game in 5 days, you may have too much time on your hands. plus GF has the queue system (like bb@H) but it really sucks when you wait the 5-7 days for shipping (avg time it takes from sending a disk back to get the new one) only to find out you didn't get the game you'd been hoping for but your #2 game on the list. Though a plus for GF is it does have a nice rewards system and good deals on used games
i figure BB@H is about the same just with not as new of titles. and the rewards. as someone else said, sounds like another perk in addition to all it already offers. though not a bad idea to add on another disk for the $5 a month and use that as the game rental.
